Are you a high school or undergraduate student interested in experiencing scientific research and tree science?
Are you excited to learn new skills while getting paid?
Are you worried about applying because you don’t have any experience?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, this introductory internship is for you! We welcome students with little or no experience to participate in ongoing research at The Morton Arboretum. Be mentored by one of our PhD-level scientists and see what it’s like to join a scientific lab. Spring and summer start dates and number of hours per week are flexible and can be discussed with your supervisor. Laboratory, computer, and outdoor field opportunities available, including virtual projects, and additional positions may become available later in the year. No cover letter or resume needed.
Applications are no longer being accepted for 2021 Research Technician Fellowships, but learn more about mentorship at the Arboretum or see open positions.
The Center for Tree Science’s Integrated Mentorship Program is committed to supporting students and professionals at every stage in their careers. As the Arboretum continues to grow a diverse and inclusive program, flexible work assignments and additional assistance may be available, and applicants from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM programs are strongly encouraged to apply.
